Letting Go describes a simple and effective means by which to let go of the obstacles to enlightenment and become free of negativity. During the many decades of the author's clinical psychiatric practice, the primary aim was to seek the most effective ways to relieve human suffering in all of its many forms. The inner mechanism of surrender was found to be of great practical benefit and is described in this book.

The bulk of the book has practical methods for moving beyond your emotions and understanding how much they control your current life. I’ve been working through these methods due to reading other books over the years so I can attest that it works, though this one is very well written to “learn the skills”.

However it does get, perhaps too ‘spiritual’ and ‘be healed by a tv preacher’ like at many points that I found it distracting or taking away from the the tools it was teaching. I understand it’s sharing these examples of enlightenment and energy as a goal and perhaps my mind is too closed, but I could have done without these sections.

Baby-Led Weaning explodes the myth that babies need to be spoon-fed and shows why self-feeding from the start of the weaning process is the healthiest way for your child to develop. With baby-led weaning (BLW, for short), you can skip purees and make the transition to solid food by following your baby's cues. At about six months, most babies are ready to join the family at the kitchen table and discover food for themselves. Baby-Led Weaning is the definitive guide to this crucial period in your child's development.

Could have been summed up in one chapter and was overly biased against using spoons. Towards the end with the frequently asked questions “is it ok to occasionally feed with a spoon?” It had a lengthy overly wordy explanation that repeats what was already repeated throughout and then finally says “no there’s nothing wrong with it”.
The “meat and potatoes” of the book is good though and I would recommend the book/feeding method to others.
